Ft. Hamilton, Brooklyn NY: Erase Rebel Street Names

We thought the street riots in Virginia demanding statues of Civil War generals be destroyed in the South had quieted down. Wrong! Now, way up north in Brooklyn, of all places, angry activists are yelling for the same changes of local street signs.

In the U.S. Army base at the Bay Ridge area, several streets are dedicated to Rebel Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. How about some suggestions for new names: Kardashian Highway, O.J. Simpson Avenue, Bill Cosby Street and Usher Boulevard. Or just call all of them Star-Crossed Lovers’ Lanes.
